Liberal Bulldog head coach Eric Olmstead wasn't impressed. His team split an ugly night of baseball plagued with errors on their home field Monday evening. The Bulldogs beat the River Rats (from Holcomb, Scott City, and Sublette) 11-3 in game one but lost the second game 15-14.
In game one, Stevie Lira went three and two-thirds innings of a game which went just five innings due to the run rule. The River Rats had six errors and Liberal had three while both teams mustered four hits a piece.
The Bulldogs somehow scored 10 runs in the first in game two but still lost. Liberal led 14-2 early in the game before the River Rats plated four in the fourth, one in the fifth to keep the game going, five in the sixth, and three in the seventh. Most of the runs came due to errors.
The Bulldogs are 14-13 and host Woodward Tuesday night at the Liberal Baseball Complex.
Also at the Liberal Baseball Complex Monday night, the Cimarron River Rattler 14's beat Hugoton 15-0 in three and 16-2 in four. They play at home again on Wednesday and are now 21-3.
